      Given the price of the complete set of bladders is around $100 USD, why
      are the Wipika/Naish kites are so expensive compare to the C-Quad (both
      are single skin kites, the only somewhat "construction" difference is
      the bladders versus battens) ? Is it something to do with the Wipika's
      patent? If so, when will the patent expire such that we can have more
      affordable gear for the beginners?
